Our first week

In reception we have had a very busy first week. We have enjoyed making new friends and getting to know our teachers. We have tried very hard all week in our new lessons and we are getting very good at singing the alphabet chant to help us in Phonics. We have particularly enjoyed our first PE lesson where we played some team building games to help us get to know our friend’s names.
